Imam Dies After Concluding Prayer In Makkah

MAKKAH – A Saudi university professor passed away on Wednesday, October 4, a few seconds after concluding Asr prayer in his mosque in Makkah.

Dr. Khaled Al-Qurashi, the Professor of Da’wa ‘Islamic Call’ and Islamic Culture, was leading prayer in the mosque in Al-`Awali district in Makkah.

Concluding the prayer, he sat to make du`aa when he passed away in peace.

The Imam was buried on Thursday after being offered the funeral prayers in Al-Masjid Al-Haram.

Last July, Syrian Mu’adhin Abdul Haq al Halabi passed away while waiting to call the adhan for Fajr prayer at a Jeddah mosque.

Al Halabi, 60, was sitting reciting the Qur’an and passed away with just minutes left before the time of Adhan
